I bought my CD220CE two years ago. I wasn't shopping for a new acoustic but I noticed this guitar's beautiful wood and hardware and just had to give it a try. I was blown away by it's tone and playability. At $399.00 it played and sounded as good if not better than guitars at twice the money. After installing a set of Elixir coated strings I found the deep, rich tone that I love in a dreadnaught. The on-board Fender Classic 4T pre-amp/ equalizer is more than adequate when I plug in to play a gig. The tuner makes tuning on stage a snap. I always get compliments on the dao wood top, back and sides. The gold hardware also compliments the gold/ brown deep grained wood and makes this one visually pleasing instrument.

Beautiful guitar but an absolute piece of junk. Out of the box--the tuner package was held in by one screw and the plastic retainer inside (the screw holes were way too big). Batt to preamp wires hanging loose (not secured). The bridge is so loose it leans and without the strings to hold it in it falls out. Of course it cannot fret true because of the bridge. A bad experience. Expected more from a Fender 220. Guess I'll stick to Martin.Hank Endler

Great Guitar!

By AxeWielder1052

from Washington

This guitar is great! I have owned it for a year now and it plays flawlessly. It's very loud for being a laminate top. The Fishman pickup is awesome. This guitar sounds great "plugged" or "unplugged"! Definetly reccomend. Rock on!

Good for Beginers and Playing Around

By SiahJ.S.282

from Soldotna, Alaska

Having perchased this guitar with a strong respect for fender, i was expecting quality, and found it. The guitar is both beautiful to look at, and to handle. It holds its tuning well, and the neck size makes it easy and enjoyable to play. Deffinatly worth the price, a great guitar for someone looking to play casualy or beginers.

Very Good Guitar for the Money

By JV Strat Man

from Cleveland

I have owned Fender Electrics for years and decided it was time to get an acoustic. I didn't want to pay thousands for a Martin, Bourgerois, Collings, Taylor though they are worth the money. But I wanted a good guitar. I went into the Acoustic Room at the local dealer and the first one that grabbed my eye was this guitar. I picked it off of the wall and played it. "Wow" was my first thought. Looked at the price tag and said "Wow". I thought that acoustics were hard to play (guess I had been playing to many cheap ones) but this guitar was smooth. If you want a loud guitar that really projects this is not the one. But if you want a differnet smooth, mellow sound and looks this is the one. I have owned my CD220CE for a year now and will never get rid of it. No flaws or defects when built and still looks brand new today. I highly recommend this guitar!

Superior Value Playabler Guitar

This is a stunningly beutiful guitar that plays quite well -- I did not agree with some that did not like the tone. I played mine before I bought it and found it was one of the best sounding guitars out of dozens. I wish that it had a solid top, so that I could expect it to sound better through the years, but that typically doesn't happen with a ply-top guitar. Nonetheless, the tone is beautiful, plugged or unplugged. I agree that it's not the loudest dreadnaught I've ever played, and it's not as loud as some jumbo acoustics, but it is very respectable and has a lovely unplugged tone. The electronics are excellent, though not superb. Despite it's not being at the top of the heap of all acoustic/electrics ever made, it's in the top 20 percent, in my opinion, and is a very playable, giggable, professional enough to use regularly, instrument. Value wise, it's near to unbeatable. I've been playing over 25 years and have owned a $2000 Gretsch acoustic electric. This isn't too far behind.

Mostly Good

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I have owned this guitar for nearly three years and treated it properly. THe looks are amazing. The playability is mediocre. The sound is unique, I just have a problem with the projection. Overall its a good beginner acoustic. It will do what you need it to do fine, however, I feel even cheaper guitars can do it better. If you dig it, you dig it. I did but its time to step up now that I know what im after.

Reeeeaaaaal Nice Guitar

By Tigerburning

from Port Hope, MI

This is my second guitar. I love the tone and I always get compliments on both how the guitar looks and sounds. I replaced the stock bridge pins with D'andrea brass ones, and the sustain is increadible. I also use Martin Marquis SP strings in Med gage. The setup is real good. If you've got the cash I recomend this guitar. You'll never find a look a like.
